Gilbert over at GSTP has just received direct confirmation from Iberia that it will indeed be honouring the generous bonus Avios promotion – and that the Points should be hitting our accounts in the coming “hours/days”.
This is obviously excellent (though not unexpected) news – and credit to Gil for getting an official response from Iberia, because they had gone a bit quiet over the last day or so.
Before you start manically scrambling to check your account every 5 minutes to see if the Points are there – do remember that this is Iberia. I wouldn’t be hugely surprised if the ‘hours’ part of the “hours/days’ quote ends up being a little optimistic.
In fact, despite the confirmation, I won’t personally be cracking open the champagne until the Points are safely in my account and I’ve made sure there aren’t any crazy restrictions (well, unless England beat Colombia before then!).
We might still have to be patient for a little while longer, but it looks like this really was the promotion of the year!
What are you planning to do with your Avios? 😉
